Who are Dental Implants for?

Patients with gappy or crooked teeth are ideal candidates for dental implants as one of the most common and popular treatments for replacing missing teeth.

When you visit us for your initial consultation, we will first examine the structure of your mouth and bone dentistry to decide whether or not bone augmentation treatment will be necessary before going ahead with dental implants.  Call our expertly trained team of dental professionals at Westbury Dental Care today on 020 8942 8943 or use our contact form to get in touch!

What are implants?

Implants are one way of replacing missing teeth.  A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth.  It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails, and just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.  Implants can also be used to support fixed bridges or dentures.  Dental implants serve as long-term solutions for replacing missing teeth, if properly maintained and look after using our recommended daily oral habits and hygiene practices such as brushing teeth and flossing twice a day.

Furthermore, dental implants are also ideal for supporting crowns and dentures in a similar way that the root supports natural teeth.  Implant treatment normally has two stages.  First, the implant is placed in the jaw.  Then, when the jaw has healed, replacement teeth are attached to the implant.

Can anyone have implants?

Most patients will be suitable for dental implants but this will largely depend on the quality of your jaw bone.  Your dentist will carefully investigate and plan your case and if there is insufficient bone, they will graft bone to the site.  Having missing teeth does not automatically qualify someone to have dental implants and  good general and oral health is needed.

The vast majority of our patients who choose to have dental implants with Westbury Dental Care are healthy adults with fully developed and stagnant gums.  Dental implants are rarely suitable for younger children as underlying bones are still growing at this stage.
